The use of permeable pavements for stormwater management is gaining rapid acceptance as a component of sustainable design for stormwater management.  This webinar highlights best practices for the design, construction, and long-term maintenance of asphalt, concrete, and interlocking concrete permeable pavements.  Lessons learned from the preparation of a new American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) Standard for the Design of Permeable Pavements is presented.

Guide construction specifications and construction and maintenance guidelines are provided via checklists. A key tool for assessing surface infiltration and subsequent vacuum cleaning is the adoption of an ASTM surface infiltration test for permeable pavements.  The purpose of this course is to develop an understanding of the key features of the design, construction, and maintenance of permeable pavements to assist agencies and other owners to implement permeable pavement systems for economical stormwater management. 

Webinar Benefits

  1. Site characterization to determine if a location is suitable for a permeable pavement.
  2. Structural and hydrological design of permeable pavements.
  3. Understand the design detail differences between conventional and permeable pavements.
  4. Understanding key specifications necessary for a successful project
  5. Lessons learned from the construction and maintenance of permeable pavements. 


Delivery Method:  Virtual Session – Zoom Webinar

Course Fee Includes: Access to the course, course materials, and upon completion a digital certificate if requested.

This course is delivered in partnership with local and provincial construction associations across Canada. You will be participating with a group of industry peers from multiple regions.

Sharing a single registration between two or more individuals is not permitted. Please register each person that will be in attendance.


There are no prerequisites for this course.

Who Should Attend

This webinar is tailored for civil engineers, urban planners, environmental consultants, and anyone involved in sustainable stormwater management initiatives.

Technical Requirements

  1. Computer or laptop 

    • This course will involve on-screen interaction with your instructor and classmates, reading/viewing on-screen content (slides or videos), and interacting via typing with questions or responses. For this reason, cellphones may not be adequate. 

    • Windows 10 or Mac iOS  

  1. Internet connection - For best results, you will want to ensure you have an internet connection with an upload/download speed of 3-5 Mbps. You can test your internet speed here. Minimum recommended speed is 1.5 Mbps, but anything below 3 Mbps may result in loss of quality or buffering. Ideally hardwired connection versus wireless for stability - connect your computer directly to your router using an ethernet cable, rather than using your home wi-fi.  

  1. A quiet space with minimal distractions - microphone will be engaged for interactive sessions. Please plan to be fully engaged in the class and clear your work schedule just as you would for the in-class program.    

  1. Comfortable chair
